Draft CEN Workshop Agreement on Quality Assurance Guidelines for Dual Training Systems

This Workshop will produce a CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA), which will define quality criteria and guidelines for effective dual training (dual systems). The document aims at simplifying the dual training process for every kind of structure and it will include examples of best practices related to the different experiences of the CEN Workshop participants. It will also contain an annex addressing the need for code of conducts between host company and trainee and providing for additional examples, thus addressing another relevant aspect, which is the centrality of the person, seen not only as a resource and part of an economic mechanism.

The development of a CWA, based on the consensus of the parties, is the most suitable tool to provide policymakers and all interested stakeholders with a guide, a reference document which, although not binding, will act as a catalyst for further documents, proposals and future European projects.


The draft CWA ‘Guidelines for Dual Training Systems' is now available for commenting. You are kindly invited to submit comments on the draft CWA to the Workshop Secretary, Mr Mario GALLO (mario.gallo@uni.com), using the below commenting form by Thursday, 15 September.
